Porthtowan Surfboat Wins Round 2 @ Portreath!

June 26, 2012 Posted by AdamR in Latest News 0 comments

Round 2 of the UKSRL Summer Surf Boat Series was held at Portreath on Saturday 23rd June 2012. There were 9 mens crews, and 8 ladies crews competing. Porthtowan Men’s crew easily won the three qualifying rounds, and secured themselves a place in the Golden Point Final. After a nail biting finish, with the Dutch hitting the beach slightly ahed, Jules Chenoweth secured the Porthtowan Blue Bali victory, with an impressive sprint to the flag.

In the Ladies races, Porthtowan Black and Blues won 2 of their three qualifying rounds, being stopped by a ‘rogue’ set in the third round, where, after a valiant comeback, they finished third. Before the final, three crews (Perranporth x 2, Bude and Porthtowan Black and Blues) were all on equal points, but the Black and Blues managed to outrow them in the final, to secure a victory. The newly formed Ladies B (Hot Chocolate) also put in a solid performance, and tied in 6th place. The points system has changed this year, keeping competition much tighter, so it’s going to be an exciting Round 3 at Watergate on 15th July….
